New Holland grain header to debut at Cereals
On display at New Holland’s stand number H-814-8, it’s likely to draw the crowds throughout the show at Chrishall Grange, Nr Duxford in Cambridgeshire.
The header width of 41 feet (12.50 metres) was chosen because today many large farms utilise 36-metre tram lines in their fields. With a robust welded frame design, it adds even more capacity to one of the highest-output machines in the world.
The adjustment range for the knife in longitudinal direction is 575mm and adjustment is performed electro-hydraulically from the cab to suit all harvesting conditions. It is easily adapted to use with optional side knives for harvesting rapeseed.
New Holland will also be exhibiting alongside it a range of machinery including the Basildon-built T7 and T6 tractors as well as a selection of hay, forage and material handling equipment.
The show will continue the official year-long celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Basildon Tractor Plant and it will represent another chance to see the special edition Golden Jubilee tractor up close.
Dedicated PLM and Aftersales areas will complete the New Holland stand at the show.
The brand will be showcasing the advances of Precision Land Management (PLM) which has up to 32 orbiting satellites at its disposal to fix a machine’s location on the farm to guide operations down to a few centimetres.
Take, for example, someone without PLM seeding a field with a drill width of four metres and an overlap of 15-16cm – over 1,000 acres that works out as working an astonishing 40 extra acres.
With PLM, however, those small differences in time, expense and effort that mount up are instead squeezed down, making unnecessary labours increasingly a thing of the past.
